Subject: Results from JPL PD: A1-Test3 


Here is the analyzed data from Test 3 of the A1 JPL PD.

Note about the QE measurement: 

  • HOM beam QE was performed during the warm up phase. Collimating lens was fixed and beam pointing was optimized at 100mA before each measurement. Likely that not all power was on PD but that distribution was constant throughout measurement. Therefore, good proxy for shape of QE response.
  • Manual QE was performed with 25mA current, optimized collimating lens position (and thus the beam size on the PD). The data corresponds to 8.0mm between the lens mount and fiber mount. The beam pointing was optimized before each measurement at 25mA.
  • QE projection scales the "HOM beam QE" result to the manual QE measurements to project out expected QE performance vs temperature

Dark current is the output from the Keithley scan - the vertical scale is correct in Amps [ignore question mark]

Dark noise spectra are included for different bias levels and at different temperatures. Stll need to add ADC noise floor for these plots.

Notes from Test 3


6-Oct-2021: done with cryocooler off and temperature increasing


SR560 gain = 500

LD temp set point = 20.2kOhm
